Forgive me father for I have sinned...it's been 12 months since my last blog...
How time does fly when you move half way across the globe. Long months spent waiting for visas, finding a job, rebuilding a home, learning the fine art of negotiating round-a-bouts and settling into my new wellies. My family and I are 100% committed to life on 'Mud Island'. Mushy peas, bangers and mash, crumbles, Yorkshire pudding, pubs, rain, mud, more rain and a bit of brass monkey weather is now our life.
A big change from Africa. And I would be lying if I told you I didn't miss it. I do. The smell of the rain on a dusty road, the sounds of approaching thunder, the sound of Christmas beetles and the hot African sun turning my pale skin from lilly white to fire engine red. But I can tell you that we don't regret the decision to move to the United Kingdom.
Hope you come back soon for a visit...don't know 'bout you, but I'm desperately seeking something yum!
